“Form follows function,” was embedded within their work through the teachings from Marguerite Wildenhain, recalling the Bauhaus lessons she learned from Gerhard Marcks. It was during this time that Mary started to produce more commemorative items and ceramic figures, while launching a “Bear Essentials” line.
This was the title of the article that ran in a local St. Paul publication around 1974. “Peter Deneen sits at his potter’s wheel, fingers fashioning burnt-cinnamon clay into pots and plates, goblets and candle-holders, tall, corked canisters and small spice bottles.”
At this time, the Deneens wanted to open retail outlets similar to Pottery Barn, but make all of the products at their Lowertown studio. A favorite quote (of the current office) staff has Peter saying. “We’ll never be more than a handful of people. I’d never get larger than three stores,” says Peter.” “Don’t say ‘never,’” interjects Mary.” Wow, how the path has deviated from the plans made in 1974!
Peter and Mary kept busy all summer after that article came out, typically working 6-7 days a week producing wares in preparation for the Minnesota Renaissance Festival.
The exact day is unclear, but Peter does remember counting and recounting the cash drawer to be sure that the total was correct…they had made over $1,000.00 in a single day. What did they do with the money? “We bought two North Face down sleeping bags – it got cold out there at night.”
